This Newborn Baby Was Found In A Septic Pit In Ogun State

Residents of  Surulere community, in Abeokuta area of Ogun state woke up to the cry of a newborn baby who was dumped in a septic outlet.
The baby who still had the placenta uncut was discovered by members of the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Church who heard the non-stop cry of the baby during their night vigil thereby raising a rescue team who in turn searched for the baby.
The councillor representing the area, Ayoola Kabir said that he was contacted at about 6.45 pm, and made arrangements to get the baby to the hospital.
“First, the idea of contacting the Police came, but, I considered saving the life of the innocent baby first.

“From experience, going to the Police may result in losing the baby, so we took him to the Local Government Health centre, and he was fully revived and a jaundice injection was given. I came back this morning, Sunday, and thank God, he’s doing fine.”
Kabir further said the damaged pit slab which had collapsed some years ago but was not replaced was what
saved the baby from falling deeper into the soak-away pit.
